A key purpose for the existence of school support systems is that they contribute to the betterment and development of teachers, curriculum, teaching and learning for all schools in the system. K-12 educational leadership’s core purpose is to bring about improvement in the teaching and learning functioning of all schools in the system and not just a few. Therefore content relating to how school systems understand, think of and support (or impede) curricular improvements, teacher professional development, innovative teaching and learning practices are core part of leadership content and hence find place in the taxonomy.
